4. Please use the cm (centimeter) side of the ruler it will be much easier to make out on camera.

A pick-up window will be determined likely the mid of April and frags will be picked up from Jose at:

Amazing Reefs and Aquariums

Do not worry if your frag grows four inches in the days before the contest ;), we will base the winner on total growth after the first post date. @BST310 will keep excel record of each participants monthly measurements. IE if your first post frag is 4cm and last post it is 20cm but another participants first post is 8cm and last post was 22cm. You’d still be considered the winner as you had more overall growth.

Good luck to every participants!

If I win the game, the $25 HPC gift card will be sent to the 2nd rank. But I think it's impossible for me to win b/c I will have 3 weeks vacation in June. :)
Why is that? Nobody to watch the tank? If so, you can set up a wireless webcam and check in every so often to see if fish are swimming, lights and return pumps are on. I kept the stand doors open also just so I can see if skimmer overflowed. I bought a wyze cam for this purpose when I went on vacation. Best 40 bucks I spent. lol

My family will help but none of them has any knowledge about the fish tanks in general. I will create another post to ask everyone's input about caring for the tank while I'm on vacation.

I am out of town quite often and I love my Wyze camera for the exact same reason.

I have quite a few fail safes setup but if you are going to depend on the Wyze for tank sitting I would also install a mechanical timer on your router to turn it off for 15 minutes (resetting it) once a day, I picked 3am.

If for any reason you have a network problem and can't see your camera, this will fix that 9 outa 10 times.

When you are gone 20 times a year, sometimes for 2-3 week then you pick up a few tricks.
